  • I wanted to like this movie

    By Name_Is_Nick
    It has its moments, but let's be honest, this plot is just plain tired...
  • Absolutely Terrible

    The leeding man looks like he's 16. The plot does not keep your attention I kept dozing off trying to watch it. Save your money!
  • A much better version of what you've seen before

    By PainJunkie
    While it is true that this story line of personal tragedy giving birth to unbridled revenge that is channeled into patriotic employ is not new, it is a rendition superior to anything you've previously seen. Dylan O'Brien is utterly convincing as are many of the supporting actors. David Suchet has a minor part, but he is so captivating in his scenes that you have the feeling you could easily enjoy watching him read a phone book. The special effects when the waves threaten aircraft carriers and other ships is breathtaking, truly one of the most awe-inspiring things I've ever seen in a film. The fight scenes are top notch, and there was gratefully no stupidly contrived steamy romance scenes. This is meant to be a thrill ride. It is. Bottom line: you've been on this kind of roller coaster before. So what? It's a better ride, so just enjoy!
  • James Bond proud

    By Adderall Diaries
    Don't expect Batman. Expect the Expendables combined with James Bond and insubordinaton thrown in for good measure.
  • Worth a rental

    By Markiemark69
    I actually enjoyed it, I mean it's a shoot 'em up, but it's good.
  • Really?

    By Roughridersv
    This story should have not been green lit. Very bad! I could not believe what I was watching!
  • Sort of OK

    By Stevepfi55
    It's OK if you're bored and need something to rent.
  • What a disappointment. . .

    By TimetoChange2020
    What a disappointment. It was okay, but it was like having a V8 Engine that only hits on 2 cylinders. You have been warned.
  • Not worth watching

    By Omar2323
    I should've listened to the reviews. Poor storyline...
  • $19.99 is too much!!

    By OkiiKuma
    Hey Apple!!!! Don't you think $19.99 for a digital release is way too much? How about a maximum of $14.99 for a new release?
